I sat in this week with the Faces On The Radio crew and Karen Page (drummer for The Minders and former talent buyer for Someday Lounge) for a podcast about music, booking, and more music.
This week’s episode is UP!
THIS WEEK: Our series on the lives of venue employees continues with bookers, and we have Karen Page (formerly of Backspace and Someday Lounge, now of Urban Pantry) and Theo Craig (Rontoms and host of XRAY.FM's Take It To The Bridge) with us to talk about what a typical day looks like for a booker, and to give some expert advice to bands looking to get booked.
PLUS!! We talk about Malcolm Young of AC/DC, The Afghan Whigs, Queens of the Stone Age, Arlo Guthrie, Mr.bones, and more!
We also talk about our coming weeks, which includeCircle Takes the Square, Your Rival, Drive-By Truckers,Franz Ferdinand, Jian Ghomeshi, Tokyo Police Club - and lots, lots more!
Souvenir Driver’s new album Living Water comes out April 22, but we’ve got a special sneak peek - an exclusive stream of the entire thing, only here at the Mercury! Living Water is the Portland four-piece’s third full-length effort, a dream-rock, bliss-pop album with traces of post-punk and shoegaze.
